Cool concept that works well. Robots that can withstand collisions instead of avoiding them and use that event to guide where they go. Typical approach is to prgram complex logic to sense the environment and build logic to avoid obstacles.
Neat idea to integrate smartphone features with Arduino without much building. This is a project to watch.
Waiting for kickstarter.
Another home automation project on Arduino platform.
Doorman Arduino is an open source project that controls the doors of your house. It uses a network connection and an Arduino to accomplish this function. As in domotic appliances, the main goal is to be in control of all your entrances (main door, garage door,…). On top of that, our goal is to achieve this functions without the need of any specialized software on the client side. A web browser is the only requirement to be able to control all the doors.
More details and demo after the jump.
Wolf shows how to create Mavericks OSX DVD for those who won’t get on with the program and rely on network installs.
For me it is more about conserving bandwidth and having options in case I need it when I am offline. Plus why not ?
Detailed steps outlined after the jump.
Another campaign from Borderless Electronics that aims to bring inexpensive components to the masses interested in tinkering with hardware projects.
Basically they want to create educational materials for hobbyists and kids and using the proceedings from kits to fund the initiative.
The campaign has taken off quite well.
Here is breakdown of what you get in the kit.
Arstechnica breaks out step by step instructions for those who do not want a single click installation of the latest and greatest from Apple or want a clean install.
Check out the full instruction after the jump.
Organization, iLab // Haiti has introduced the first two 3D printers to the country of Haiti. This is remarkable use of technology for humanitarian aid and development. It does seem strange to give this bleeding edge technology that is not yet mainstream to resource poor citizens of Haiti but makes perfect sense when you realize that this might afford them some sort of self reliance by removing some barriers.
First use case – Printing Umbilical Cord Clamps in Haiti.
Our organization, iLab // Haiti has brought the first two 3D printers to the country of Haiti. We have partnered with KIDmob to teach critical thinking, creative problem solving, adaptability, and communication along with the technical skills of rapid prototyping.
Cool project to use Arduino to monitor and track energy generation and other environmental data. Can be applied to Photovoltaic generation also.
OpenEnergyMonitor is a project to develop open-source energy monitoring tools to help us relate to our use of energy, our energy systems and the challenge of sustainable energy.
Series of articles on building a robot using Arduino platform. The author has a modular approach in covering diffrent aspects of robot. There are four articles covering Motor, Chasis, Coding and use of sensor.
Beginner robotics is a series of articles chronicling my first autonomous robot build, Clusterbot. This build is meant to be affordable, relatively easy and instructive.
